An Open Letter To Coffee

Alright coffee,

Here's the thing. I feel like this relationship is a tad bit... one-sided. I wish it was more co-dependent, but let's be real here, if I stopped drinking you today would you even notice?

You are one of my first thoughts in the morning. You're an important part of most of my busiest days. And you're important part of my daily ritual in my life.

Some days I think that it would be easier to just quit our relationship. That it would be a lot healthier for me and my new life style. I think how great my life would be without depending on you.

But I've seen people who have quit you before and I don't appreciate the side effects. These people were cranky and whiny without you by their side. They didn't know how to function without having you as part of their everyday world. So I've come to the conclusion that we just need to stick together no matter what.

I need your assistance and your support in my life. You are the fortitude that helps me make it through the rough days in my life. You have been there through out all of my difficult days. Coffee, you were even there when I lived in the library studying my brains out for my final exams.

Quitting you isn't so simple. You see, if I skipped out on coffee in some of my earliest mornings I would drag myself around campus like a zombie. No one would want to tolerate me and my weary words without you. People would tell me that I need to go back to you and realize how better my life is with you, coffee, in it. They would plead for me to get back with out and quit being so negative.

To be honest, I've tried drinking tea instead for a few short weeks, but the relationship just isn't the same. Tea just doesn't have the positive influence on my life that I was hoping that I would have.

It has been make known to me that no matter the day, month, season, or stage of my life, that your presence is necessary. Even though we've had our ups and our downs, coffee, I really do appreciate the little things that you do for me. Without you, my life would be very cold and dark.

I love and appreciate all that you do for me.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
